Leishmania Culture Service

Leishmania protozoa refers to the trypanosomes of the genus Leishmania, which have a protoflagellate and amastigote life history. The former is parasitic in the digestive tract of arthropods (whiteflies) and the latter is parasitic in mononuclear macrophages of vertebrates and is transmitted by whiteflies. Leishmania protozoa infects humans, dogs, cats, cattle, horses, and sheep. Test animals such as rats, dolphins and monkeys are also susceptible.

Leishmaniasis is a human-animal parasitic disease caused by various protozoa of the genus Leishmania and is transmitted between arthropods and mammals. The clinical pathology of the disease is characterized by irregular high fever, emaciation, anemia, leukopenia, enlargement of the liver, spleen, and lymph nodes, and the formation of hypertrophic or ulcerative lesions in the skin and mucous membranes.

Ace Therapeutics specializes in parasitology and has established a parasite culture technology platform that provides culture services for a wide range of parasites. We provide in vitro culture services for leishmania, aiming to facilitate its experimental diagnosis, morphological studies, life history (ecology), pathogenesis, epidemiological patterns, immunogenetic characteristics, and preservation of the species.
